Say, what?

A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

Friday, April 13, 2007

OUCH!


I feel his pain.

While the injuries Gov. Corzine sustained an auto accident yesterday are not life-threatening, they are serious. Having had similar injuries - a compound fracture of the left leg, broken ribs and a compressed fracture of the vertebrae - I cringe at what he's feeling right now.

Nothing I've ever experienced, including natural childbirth, ever has hurt that much.

Once he's stabilized, there's still the possibility of infection in the leg that will leave him in fear of amputation for months, not to mention post-traumatic stress, a year of therapy and arthritis later in life. Most likely he'll have a limp and one leg shorter than the other.

He has a long recovery ahead of him.

Hopefully, he's on some good drugs.

Maybe he can share them with now Acting Gov. Codey.

Ironically, he was enroute to the Gov's mansion to meet with Imus and Rutgers team for the "apology" and "healing"last night...Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson will probably blame Imus for this, too...there was a report the Guv may not have been wearing a seat belt but haven't heard anything further to confirm that or not..

It appears he wasn't wearing his seat belt and will be issued a citation from state police according to his press spokesman..wasn't the injured driver a State cop? Why didn't he tell him to buckle up? It's weird that 3 NJ governors all broke legs while in office - Christy Todd Whitman, Jim McGreevey and now Corzine..what are the odds?

And after his year of therapy, should the Guv take up riding a motorcycle?

So, no seat belt? Very interesting-bet the driver to blame was on a mobile!

What a bonehead move! Riding in the front seat and not being belted in?
If I was the Governor,I'd be stretched out in the back of my SUV or Limo,belted in and enjoying the ride.
Hope the Gov heals fully and will now be more careful.

Great photography on this one! I can almost recall the use of those ambulatory devices, although I would rather NOT! Thanks again for the painful reminder. Good job on this, keep up the good work!!
